This entire riding lies within the city of Mississauga, and includes some of the city's oldest neighborhoods, such as Lorne Park, Lakeview, Port Credit and Clarkson.

The borders run from Dundas Street and the Queen Elizabeth Way in the north to the shoreline of Lake Ontario in the south. In the west, its borders start at Winston Churchill Boulevard and the city limits of Mississauga, and in the east it ends at Etobicoke Creek.

In recent years, this region has seen a significant turnover of residents with many young families moving into the area.

In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Mississauga South folded 10 per cent of the old Mississauga East and six per cent of the old Mississauga West into all of the existing Mississauga South riding.

Political History:

In the old riding of Peel (which this area used to cover), former premier T.L. Kennedy (1948-1949) won an impressive 11 elections for the Tories between 1919 and 1955, failing only in the election of 1934. He was succeeded by future premier Bill Davis, who won the riding in 1959 and 1963.

In the pre-1999 Mississauga South riding, Tory Doug Kennedy won in 1975, 1977 and 1981. Incumbent Margaret Marland has held the seat since 1985.
